Submitting Art to the Shop
All members are welcome to submit their art or crafts to the online shop.
Members who would like to manage and load their own products may request to be made "vendors". Vendors can log in to the website and have access to the store management system. An instructional PDF is available.
There is no charge to submit work. Evanston Made will retain 20% of any sales. Please note, this is a change in policy.
Do not submit more than 10 items to sell. As work sells you can add more. Any priced work is welcome.
Please send between 1-3 jpgs (ONLY jpgs and pngs can be used!) of these items to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Images should measure 1500px on one side. No bigger than 5MB.
Make sure they are crisp and clear. Consider sending photos that show side views or installation photos or the product in use.
Include the following information with your submission:
-Material or Process
-Inventory (How many of this item do you have to sell?)
-Description if wanted
*Shipping - you may tell us a flat shipping price for your item (in the US). OR you may include shipping in the price of the item. If you wish to have shipping added, there will be an option in the checkout for local versus shipping.
There is no charge to submit work. Evanston Made will retain 20% plus fees of any sales. Please note, this is a change in past policy.
Payment will be made the last Friday of the month via Stripe or check.
